It was well worth the getting lost four times on the way and battling with four parking meters and stress walking to get there because I was running late due to the parking meters. Thankfully they were still at Cardiff Castle our meeting place because our extremely knowledgeable guide had lots to say about it and the history as well as how it was used in the filming and making of Doctor Who. It was great to get to actually see where it all comes to life. To actually be on the same spot where some of my absolute favorite actors have been. It was so much fun to meet fellow Whovians. If you are a Doctor Who fan, then this tour is for you! Our guide most definitely knew his stuff. And this particular tour is priced at a great value that won't break the bank. So much so that you could afford to take the whole fam. So what are you waiting for, book now!

Brilliant tour from start to finish. Our tour guide Sally from the valley was excellent and very knowledgeable, cracking jokes and telling us funny anecdotes. Glenda the owner of the Gwen and Stacey's house is very accommodating and clearly embraces the fact her house was used. It is basically a shrine to the show. I would highly reccomend this tour to anyone who is a fan of the show. You finish off in Barry island which is lush.
